Michael Fitzmaurice: ...can be turned up or down at any stage. US President Joe Biden announced yesterday they were going to do all in their power to ensure Europe was going to be okay and bring in liquefied natural gas, LNG. Ironically enough, Ireland as a country and the Government have decided that they are going to block a proposed LNG terminal. Yesterday, I listened in astonishment to the Minister for the...

Seanad: Maritime Area Planning Bill 2021: Report and Final Stages (17 Dec 2021)

Alice-Mary Higgins: ...review might be taken or a judicial review based on environmental concerns strikes an odd note. It is a strange decision.

...Ireland continue to use gas, Corrib may end up depleted in a period of time. We have two pipes coming off it in Scotland and that is it. We have no other source of gas in the country. We have no LNG terminal in Ireland. The issue of security of supply if we continue using gas is a real issue that needs to be to the fore of our considerations. While I know the rationale for the...

Maritime Area Planning Bill 2021: Report and Final Stages (1 Dec 2021) See 2 other results from this debate

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...pushing this stuff out in other parts of Europe. That discussion has not been had, but the developers are moving ahead. What we are looking for in this amendment is some level of protection. LNG terminals and fossil fuel extraction should not be happening - that is a no-brainer. There should be no maritime area consents because you cannot do the development unless you get a MAC, if...

Climate Action Plan 2021: Statements (23 Nov 2021)

Michael Healy-Rae: ...had to reopen. Why did they have to open? The Minister did everything he could to shut them down. It was part of Green Party policy, the same as doing away with a proposed liquefied natural gas, LNG, project. The Minister shut that down. These stations had to open in spite of him and we would be in the dark here tonight if it was not for them.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (18 Nov 2021)

Michael Healy-Rae: ...that is so important to what they do everyday. The Minister should not talk to me about energy. We have seen what he has done in the programme in the Government has done with regard to Shannon LNG. He shut that project down. It was in the previous programme for Government in 2016. He is telling everybody to use more and more electricity. What has he done about providing it? He has...

Michael Healy-Rae: ...(Amendment) Act completely undermines our uncontested need for more gas-fired power and energy generation to ensure continued security of the electricity supply. Now, more than ever, the Shannon liquefied natural gas, LNG, project should be going ahead. What was the Government's answer when it came into office? It was to capitulate and give in to the Green Party. What did the...

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...ancillary to a terminal that is used for the liquefaction of natural gas or the importation, offloading and re-gasification of liquefied natural gas", because some of us think that we do not need LNG infrastructure.

Select Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Marine Planning Area Bill 2021: Committee Stage (Resumed) (4 Nov 2021) See 1 other result from this debate

Richard Boyd Barrett: ..., NMPF, is not fully compliant with the directives. It sets out fairly general policy objectives, some of which are laudable while others are not so laudable in the case of liquid natural gas, LNG, storage and infrastructure. However, it is not really a plan. It is not ecosystem-based and it does not guarantee that the load the sea can take in terms of development is fully considered in...

Finance Bill 2021: Second Stage (Resumed) (3 Nov 2021)

Danny Healy-Rae: ...tells us that it has closed down Bord na Móna. We know that. It closed one third of Moneypoint and put nothing in to replace it. It is no wonder the amber lights are flashing. The Government is opposing Shannon LNG and is telling fellas to buy electric cars. Where are they going to plug them in? Where are they going to get the electricity? Will the electricity be there when...

Seanad: Address to Seanad Éireann by Members of the European Parliament (2 Nov 2021)

Lynn Boylan: .... If we had proper scrutiny in advance of legislation and directives, it would remove that from the conversation. We are certainly seeing that now in the case of the ban on liquefied natural gas, LNG, terminals. The Attorney General says we cannot ban them because of EU law, when I have it in writing from the EU that they absolutely can be banned and that it is entirely up to a member...

Seanad: Energy Security: Statements (2 Nov 2021)

Lynn Boylan: ...we have a huge problem with the pollution that comes with it. It is a distraction from the very ambitious goals we have around renewable energy targets. We should focus on them.

They are infrastructural projects with a 30-year lifespan whereas we only have a short-term energy...
